No more Cr-48's. For now...

And that's the end. Google has shipped the last of the Cr-48 demo units out to it's happy owner. That totals up the suspected 60,000 Chrome OS laptops that Google had built and sent for free to willing testers. Sadly, we did not receive one here at Chrome Techa. It seems that only those with the loudest voice in the media realm were deemed worthy by Google. Anywho, the Product Management VP at Google, Sundar Pichai, said they're all gone, for now.

It looks like manufacturers like Samsung and Acer are geared up to release Chrome OS notebooks to the market this summer. That's some good news, as Sammy is usually pretty good about making nice hardware. Perhaps they'll keep it simple yet sophisticated, like the Cr-48? We'll see.
